This was on the screen on the back of our airplane seat. We got really excited when it switched over to Alaska. We watched as we got closer and closer. We flew from Austin to Denver. Our second flight was from Denver to Anchorage and was a little over 5 hours. We arrived in Anchorage around 11:30 p.m. so it was a long day. We rented a car and drove to our hotel.
We had an exciting assembly today to see one of the many ways dogs are used to help people. The Austin Police K-9 Unit came and talked to the kids about how the dogs help them and we also got a demonstration from Cash, the K-9 apprehending a suspect. It was very exciting. He lives with the officer that he works with and then when he is retired from his police work, he gets to live with the officer as his pet. This dog showed such love for his officer. It was awesome to see!
